South Korea is universally known for its superior skincare and makeup products, and now, there is a new beauty technique that has taken the country by storm.
The ‘7 Skin Method’ is essentially a multi-toner application technique, where one applies a hydrating toner for seven times to maximise skin hydration and give your complexion an intense glow. The best part? The procedure takes less than five minutes and can be achieved with a single product.
To apply the ‘7 Skin Method’, first cleanse your face with a non-stripping cleanser. Pat your skin dry and work in the first layer of your hydrating toner. Just before the layer is fully absorbed, apply another layer and continue in this pattern until seven layers are completed.
The most important aspect of this method is picking the right essence-toner that will absorb easily and impart a lasting glow. Waterless and nutrient-dense essence toners are ideal, as they are equally nourishing and hydrating. Special attention should also be paid to the toner’s viscosity – if you’re using a thicker toner, three layers might be good enough. A good indicator is how well your skin is absorbing the layers to determine how much more or less you need to apply.
